>great point and YES, right on topic.... ;)  I apologize...

oh heck, no apology necessary

the nice thing about

   <p>E = mc<small><sup>2</sup></small></p>

is that it corrects the line-spacing problem without recourse to fooling
around with padding and margins and whatnot in the style sheet, which quite
a few (older) browsers won't get right in the first place

and my comment about fonts? yes of course we should be using css to declare
styles, but i may have been a bit obscure when i asked "what font tags?"

the point i wanted to make was that you shouldn't look to font sizes to fix
a problem like this, which has everything to do with relative sizes

a great article on this subject, which basically says do *not* specify a
size for your fonts, is
